“Protect via force if necessary”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Enforcer
Location: The Council of Narnia
The Imperial Democracy of Topaztopia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eli Dextera with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.769 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of the Environment, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prometheus. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, Topaztopia's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, most citizens in Topaztopia are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Topaztopia's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Topaztopia's national animal is the Phoenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Currency.
